Former USC redshirt freshman QB Ricky Town is seeking a transfer from Arkansas.

As Razorback supporters have noted, Arkansas coaches have their eyes on Cole Kelley as the school's quarterback once Austin Allen moves on, leaving Town lower on the depth chart. Town left USC after the spring and summer while facing a similar playing time dilemma. He was once a highly prized recruit.
Dec 5 - 10:25 AM

Arkansas redshirt junior QB Austin Allen completed 24-of-29 passes for 348 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions in Friday's 28-24 loss to Missouri.

Allen finished out with an impressive enough yardage total, but this was something of a sour note for the Razorbacks to end the regular season on. They jumped out to a 24-7 halftime advantage only to post scoreboard goose eggs in the third and fourth quarters. All the while, Missouri mounted an ultimately-successful second-half comeback. For his part, Allen is closing the year with a streak of interception-filled performances. He opened the season by posting a phenomenal 12/2 TD/INT ratio over his first five games. His last seven contests have seen him post an 11/10 mark. He has thrown at least one interception in six of his last seven games.
Nov 25 - 6:32 PM

Arkansas sophomore RB Rawleigh Williams III rushed for 117 yards and a touchdown on 25 carries in Friday's 28-24 loss to Missouri.

Nice -- if relatively unspectacular -- work by Williams, who showed off his fine blend of speed and power in averaging a workman-like 4.68 YPC. He busted off several medium-long runs in the fourth quarter, but Arkansas ultimately failed to score in the second half. While awaiting bowl assignment, the 5-foot-10, 205-pound Williams can proudly look back on a regular season that has seen him rush for 1,326 yards and 12 touchdowns over 12 games. For comparison's sake, the back he replaced, Alex Collins, rushed for 1,577 and 20 touchdowns in 13 games a year ago.
Nov 25 - 6:23 PM

Arkansas sophomore Rawleigh Williams III rushed for 205 yards and four touchdowns on 16 carries in Saturday's 58-42 win over Mississippi State.

All four of Williams' touchdown gallops came in the first half. Three of them went for more than 30 yards, including a 72-yard rumble to open the game's scoring with less than a minute gone by in the first quarter. This was the 5-foot-10, 205-pound sophomore's sixth game of at least 120 yards rushing and his first career 200-yard showing. Overall, Williams has rushed for 1,209 yards and 11 touchdowns through 11 games. The Razorbacks will wrap up their 2016 regular season against Missouri next Friday, then await bowl assignment.
Nov 19 - 11:03 PM

Arkansas redshirt junior QB Austin Allen completed 15-of-31 passes for 210 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions.

Allen started out the season on fire, throwing at least two touchdown passes in each of his first seven games. Things haven't gone so smoothly of late, though, as Allen has put up a 2/4 TD/INT ratio over his last three games. Surprise, surprise, those three games came against the steel trap defenses of Alabama, Florida and now LSU. He will try to finish up the season on a strong note against Mississippi State and Missouri over the next two weekends.

Arkansas received a verbal commitment from four-star 2018 LB Bumper Pool.

"You can see the excitement in the players, [HC Bret Bielema]'s been getting good wins," Pool said, "and he's doing a good job of getting Arkansas back to being a high-caliber SEC school and competing for that conference title." Over the summer, ESPN's Tom Luginbill and Craig Haubert noted that the 6-foot-2, 215-pound linebacker is "physical and heady." While National Signing Day, 2018 is not yet even visible on the horizon, Pool insisted that he will be "110-percent committed."

Nov 8 - 5:18 PM

Arkansas sophomore RB Rawleigh Williams III rushed for 148 yards and two touchdowns on 26 carries in Saturday's 31-10 win over Florida.

Williams was already turning in a fine -- if relatively unspectacular -- 100-yard day prior to his 41-yard fourth-quarter scoring burst, but that served as a statistical turbo button for the 5-foot-10, 205-pound sophomore. While Williams has had his fair share of dismal performances (including a 22-yard showing against Auburn prior to the bye), his season is shaping up nicely enough. He has rushed for 955 yards and seven touchdowns over the course of nine games played.
Nov 5 - 8:37 PM

ESPN's Mel Kiper thinks Arkansas redshirt junior QB Austin Allen is the best quarterback prospect in the SEC.

To be fair, he did concede that "there isn't any top-tier quarterback talent in the SEC" while saying so, indicating that Alabama's Jalen Hurts was the best signal-caller, but in need of more seasoning as a passer. "I don't think Ole Miss' Chad Kelly or Texas A&M's Trevor Knight are NFL starters," Kiper wrote. "Allen, though, has potential." The junior has an 18/7 TD/INT rate while completing 62.2 percent of his passes. "Allen (6-foot-1, 209) doesn't have ideal size, but his arm is good enough, and he shows good touch on intermediate throws," Kiper wrote. "He's far from a finished product, and another year in school should benefit him. He could be the top senior signal-caller next season."
Oct 31 - 7:23 PM

Arkansas redshirt junior QB Austin Allen (knee) said he feels "a lot better" and expects to play against Florida.

Allen suffered a knee injury when he was hit low and from behind by Auburn’s Carl Lawson in the second quarter on Saturday. He was replaced for a drive by backup quarterback Ty Storey so he could get a brace for his right knee. Allen returned to the game but the knee swelled in the fourth quarter, ending his day. "Just taking it day by day, and I’m sure I’ll feel a lot better by the end of the week and going into next week," Allen said. Allen is completing 62.2 percent of his attempts for 2,048 yards and an 18/7 TD/INT rate. The Hogs are on a bye this weekend. They get the Gators on Nov. 5.

After surrendering a combined 28 sacks in the 2014 and 2015 seasons, Arkansas has allowed 21 sacks in eight games during the 2016 campaign.

Against Auburn on Saturday, QB Austin Allen was forced to enter the medical tent for a short time due to the pounding he was taking. Wideout Keon Hatcher (one of just two players made available to the media after Saturday's blowout defeat) completely feels for Allen's rough spot, saying, "Me personally, I don’t know if I could do that. I take my hat off to that guy. He’s very tough." Allen is coming off his worst statistical game of the season, throwing for just 187 yards and an interception vs. Auburn. It was his first showing without a touchdown (actually, his first without multiple touchdown tosses). Florida crops up next on the Razorbacks' schedule, but Allen will at least have this week off on bye to rest up for that contest.

Oct 24 - 2:36 PM

Arkansas redshirt junior QB Austin Allen completed 17-of-30 passes for 187 yards and an interception in Saturday's 56-3 loss to Auburn.

We are big fans of Allen's work this season, but this was an outright disaster. Not just for the quarterback -- for the team as a whole. Auburn was better in every phase of the game, period. Their dominant defensive performance resulted in Allen's worst showing of the 2016 campaign. Prior to Saturday's no-show, the 6-foot-1, 216-pound gunslinger had been working on a streak of three consecutive games of three touchdowns passes.
Oct 22 - 10:01 PM

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline banged the drum for Arkansas DT Jeremiah Ledbetter as a late-round three-technique.

On Saturday against the Rebels, Ledbetter had five tackles, 1.5 tackles for loss and a sack. "Most scouts did not grade Ledbetter entering the season due to poor size/speed numbers despite the fact he’s done nothing but make plays since transferring to Arkansas," Pauline wrote. "Ledbetter has size and scheme limitations but his approach and productively make me feel he’s worthy of a late round choice for a team needing a reserve three-technique tackle."
Oct 20 - 7:53 PM

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline says Arkansas senior TE Jeremy Sprinkle "will be under-drafted" but predicts that the prospect "could eventually develop into a Sunday starter."

"...scouts are impressed with his overall game," Pauline wrote. "His blocking and disciplined route running against Mississippi helped spark the Arkansas offense all evening. And when the ball is thrown in his direction he makes the catch." The 6-foot-6, 255-pound Sprinkle has studied tape of Jimmy Graham and Rob Gronkowski. He has only 19 catches in seven games this year as the Hogs have funneled more passes to their deep receiving corps.
Oct 19 - 3:31 PM

Arkansas redshirt junior CB De'Andre Coley will miss the first half of Saturday's game against Auburn after being ejected for targeting.

This is Coley's second ejection of the season, the first coming against texas A&M in week four. Coley replaced sophomore Santos Ramirez in the starting lineup after a season ending injury. Coley has two forced fumbles on the season.

Arkansas senior TE Jeremy Sprinkle was spotted wearing a boot on his left foot on Monday.

Head coach Bret Bielema said the stud tight end is "going to be ok." The team did not practice yesterday, and it seems Sprinkle just got "banged up" during the game against Ole Miss. Sprinkle produced his season low in the narrow win, recording one catch for five yards. Many NFL teams got a good look at Sprinkle last season when evaluating Hunter Henry, and most likely enjoyed what they saw.
